Sofia Likes to Dance

Bulgaria’s famed for its yoghurt, its ski slopes, its beaches and its lovely little head bob which you never know means ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ ‘as you wish,’ ‘I’m glad you’re happy’ or ‘kindly leave my sight.’

A traditional band — guy with big drum, a clarinet, an accordion and a guy with a Strat — played as the tables emptied and a long line of locals danced in a frenzy around the small area between tables.
